I was invited by L’Oreal Philippines to attend their fashion show featuring Albert Andrada and Ezra Santos. It was quite timely as I just had my hair fixed. My initial peg was Kimbra but I wanted to be bolder this time so I opted for a Sara Barthel-esque hair cut. You should definitely check her band Phantogram out! Aside from their good sound, Sara Barthel is extremely gorgeous!
Anyway, on to the show..
People taking their seats. The whole placed was packed with fashion editors, media personalities, socialites, and fashion enthusiasts like me.
The first designer to take the stage was Albert Andrada. His collection showed different designs using pastel colors and chiffon and lace textiles.
His dresses have really flattering silhouettes. I especially loved this dress modeled by Charo Ronquillo, a Filipino model who is now taking New York by storm. Look at those details at the back of the dress! So lovely 🙂
The next person to showcase his work is Ezra Santos—a very influential designer in Middle East. In contrast to Andrada’s collection, Santos’ work was more structured.
According to reports, his collection was inspired by Barcelona’s sunset, which explains why most of the pieces were in gold, but was intensified by the dramatic details and sculptural shoulders and collars.
Ezra Santos’ collection finale. This wowed everyone.
Below is a video of the final walk for both designers. Hmm, the vid was clearer while I was editing it, I wonder why it turned out like this. Oh well, no biggie. Philippine Fashion Week Spring-Summer 2013 is almost over. I hope you got to see at least one show!
Let us continue to promote Filipino vision and artistry! Thank you for the opportunity L’Oreal! 🙂
